Once again, operating under the veil of darkness, Israel has released convicted Arab terrorists from prison, this time 26 of them. The release followed the pattern of earlier releases, as the terrorists were welcomed as heroes by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) in a Ramallah ceremony.
At the Bituniya Checkpoint, about 150 Arabs cheered the homing coming as they pelted IDF soldiers with rocks.
What was unique in this release however was the fact that five of these heinous individuals are back in their homes in Yerushalayim. Adding to the disgrace and the chilul Hashem were the PLO flags and banners welcoming the murderers home, and one such sign was displayed in the so-called Muslim Quarter of the Old City about 30 meters from the Kosel.
